Looking for a Seasonal Side Gig? These 11 Places Are Hiring Right Now

Thank you for your support!

As companies have begun to return to something like normal (if you don’t count the Great Resignation) many retailers, e-tailers, restaurants, hospitality and entertainment venues and a host of other organizations are expecting holiday sales much like in the years pre-pandemic. In fact, holiday sales for U.S. retailers are expected to increase by between 4% and 6% in 2022, according to Retail Info Systems, as compared to last year.

Here It Is: Our 2022 Small Business Spotlight

That means retailers are ramping up staffing to accommodate more customers. Plus, with new, more complicated tax laws in the past couple of years, many accounting and finance firms are also looking to hire now in preparation for their busy season in March and April. We searched job sites like FlexJobs and Indeed for some of the most interesting seasonal gigs out there right now.

Accounting and Finance

You don’t have to be a CPA to land one of these seasonal accounting and finance gigs.

1-800Accountant

Perfect if you’re looking to work from home and have a dedicated home office, 1-800Accountant is looking for IRS enrolled agents, CPAs and support staff. The company offers virtual accounting and tax prep services to small business owners, individuals and 1099 independent contractors. With flexible hours and full- or part-time schedules, if you’re looking to enter the finance field, change jobs or re-enter the workforce after the pandemic, this could be a good opportunity for you.

H&R Block Tax Preparer

An industry leader in tax preparation services, H&R Block is seeking seasonal help in its corporate and tax offices for its busiest time of year. According to the H&R Block website, the company has available seasonal positions in field support, payroll, HR, reception and, of course, tax preparation.

Retail

Retail jobs often come with a perk that’s especially useful at holiday time — store discounts.

Game Stop

If you love games and enjoy working with customers, GameStop is seeking seasonal sales representatives. Having a strong understanding of gaming and gamers will help, as you’ll be facilitating key steps in the “buy-sell-trade-model” of GameStop. Responsibilities include displaying merchandise, sharing product knowledge, cleaning, organizing and helping customers in store.

Gap Inc.

You might think that most seasonal retail jobs involve being on the sales floor or working at the cash register. But Gap Inc., parent company to Old Navy, Banana Republic and other fashion brands, is also seeking sales associates and warehouse team members, according to Indeed.

Godiva

Godiva is seeking seasonal customer care representatives. Roles include Receive incoming calls from Godiva Customers, answering questions about their products, address customer complaints, taking customer orders, handling billing and delivery issues and more.

Nordstrom

Another retailer seeking to fill both in-store and corporate roles, Nordstrom is looking for seasonal visual merchandisers, warehouse workers, administrative assistants, retail stockers, customer care specialists and more, according to Indeed.

Uncommon Goods

Uncommon Goods is seeking a full-time seasonal operations administrator to make sure that inventory and orders are completed smoothly and efficiently through the fulfillment process, and delivered to the customer.

Williams-Sonoma

The high-end retailer of home products says it typically posts part-time, temporary, freelance and remote jobs and hires staff in art and creative, marketing, customer service, retail and manufacturing. It’s currently seeking temporary customer service representatives, seasonal associates and cashiers, according to glassdoor.

E-Commerce Retailers

These e-commerce companies are staffing up for the holiday season.

Wine.com

Wine.com is seeking seasonal warehouse associates, according to Glassdoor. The company needs individuals who can work some weekend hours, so this could be the perfect part-time gig to fit into someone’s current work schedule to earn some extra cash.

Amazon

With more than a million employees, it seems as if Amazon is always hiring. The company has many part-time and seasonal positions available in areas like operations, customer support and retail. Amazon hires a lot of seasonal workers for a lot of different jobs, but the job with the most openings are for Amazon Air Gateway Team Members. This team is crucial in helping customers get their orders in a timely manner. Everything from loading cargo from warehouse to aircraft, to other warehouse duties. Because Amazon Air is a 24/7 operation, there are lots of different shift options, from part time (less than 30 hours) to full-time (40 hours), as well as weekend and weekday shifts. You must be 18 years or older and speak English. Hourly pay up to $17.50/hr.

Other Companies Hiring

Other companies seeking help for the upcoming holiday season, according to the FlexJobs report, include Harte Hanks, Kelly, Major League Baseball, Orkin Pest Control, Sundance Institute and Tiffany & Co.

While many companies are hiring for remote help this holiday, in-person positions are also available. It’s a good idea to check with local retailers, restaurants and hotels to see if they can use help. Keep an eye out for help wanted signs — especially for places that offer a sign-on bonus. But it doesn’t hurt to ask the owners of your favorite small business if they can use some holiday help, either.

Amazonで購入したグラボが偽物だったので返品すると「正しい製品が返送されるまで返金しない」とむちゃくちゃな対応をされたという報告

Amazonは注文ミスや「思っていたのと違う商品だった」など、わりとシンプルな理由でも返品を受け付けてくれますが、9万円超のグラフィックボードを注文して偽物が届いたから返品したにもかかわらず、Amazonから「本物を返すように」と理不尽な要求をされた事例が報告されています。 Family says Amazon shipped fake product, refuses refund until ‘correct’ item returned | CBC News https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/amazon-returns-1.6669601 この事態に遭遇したマシュー・レゴー氏が購入したグラフィックボードはこんな感じで、見た目は本物そのものでしたが、中身は抜き取られ、その分、重量のかさ増しのためにパテのようなものが詰められていたそうです。 レゴー氏が直ちにAmazonの返品プロセスにのっとって商品を返品し、返金を求めたところ、Amazonは「正しい商品を返送するまで返金はできない」と伝えてきたとのこと。正しい商品を受け取っていないので返品できるはずもありませんが、レゴー氏の質問を受けたAmazonは繰り返し「正しい商品を発送した」と主張したとのことです。 その上、Amazonの担当者は「他の従業員を保護するために、レゴー氏から返品された商品は捨ててしまった」とも付け加えたとのこと。返品を手伝ったレゴー氏の父・フランソワ氏はこの件について「ばかばかしい。ただのプラスチックなので、従業員に危険が及ぶとは思えません。彼らは証拠の一部を破壊してしまったのです」と述べています。 レゴー氏は「完全な偽物を受け取ったため、返品しました」と繰り返し説明し、それを証明する写真を添付したのですが、返金要請は全く通らなかったとのこと。しかし、この件を報じたCBCニュースがAmazonに問い合わせたところ、Amazonは直ちに返金を行い、「不幸な出来事」の解決に5ヶ月近くかかったことを謝罪したそうです。 小規模な企業から有名多国籍企業まで顧客とのやり取りを指導するマーケティングの専門家、マーク・ゴードン氏は「返品した商品は処分したと顧客に伝えることは、Amazonにとって会話を終わらせるための素晴らしい方法です」と指摘します。顧客からの苦情や問い合わせについてAmazonがいちいち対応している暇はなく、Amazonは物事を早く終わらせ、他のことに移りたいと考えているとゴードン氏は考察。顧客が「持っていない」と言った商品を返品するように要求するのは、問題の責任を顧客に負わせるための戦術だと指摘しました。 一方でAmazonの広報担当者は返品された商品について「衛生上、または製品の安全上の理由から、すべての返品製品が合法的に再販または寄付できるわけではありません。そのような場合は、可能な限り製品をリサイクルします」と述べており、今回のレゴー氏の商品もリサイクルされた可能性が高いとみられます。 調査会社のPitney Bowesが行った調査によると、一般的なオンライン小売業者は配送、処理、返品にかかる費用を考慮すると、返品された商品の価格の21パーセントを平均して失うとのこと。Amazonも例外ではないと考えられることから、ゴードン氏は「毎日行われる商品の返品はAmazonとって大きな出費になります」と述べています。 今回のような事例はレゴー氏だけではなく、他にも偽物を受け取った複数の利用者が「本物を渡さないと返金は不可」という返事を受け取っているとのこと。ゴードン氏は「オンライン注文に問題があり、返金を受けられないかもと心配する人は、証拠を残すために開封の儀のビデオを作るべきです」とアドバイスしました。5カ月も返金を待たされたフランソワ氏は「今回の件で、また地元で買い物をしようという気になりました」と話しました。 Read more »
